David Rivas is a Pharmacist and Clinical Nutritionist/Consultant for NUTEREL a Wellness Through Guided Nutrition. In this featured piece, Rivas talks about his consulting business, his background and the best techniques for healthy living.
Me: Hello David! Thank you for your time today! To introduce yourself to the readers, tell me a little about yourself and your background.
David: I am married to my beautiful wife Jessica, and we have been blessed with two amazing kids, David and Daviana. I met my wife in pharmacy school at the University of Puerto Rico and we graduated together. We moved from Puerto Rico to Orlando, Florida. My wife was pregnant with twins, David Jonathan (DJ) and Daviana, but David Jonathan came with a special package called severe autism. He had aggressive symptoms, hitting his head to the floor, lacking attention and focus, anxiety, insomnia, diarrhea, an obsession with lining up toys, etc. As pharmacists, we understood that there were no effective medications for autism, but my wife and I refused to give up. I went back to school and became a clinical nutritionist with a Master Degree in Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States. I began to realize that the more I improved my son's diet, the better he was getting. I understood the concept of optimizing nutrition. When you get healthy, diseases tend to go away. To get healthy, you need optimal nutrition, exercise, positive lifestyle choices, and high-quality dietary supplements. Now, my son is calm, focused, and has excellent grades in school. He is playing basketball, soccer and loves to swim.
Me: Wow!! So let's talk about Nuterel (Wellness through Guided Nutrition). What services do you offer for your clients?
David: We offer nutritional consultation on how to improve our clients' health with a better food selection for an improved focus, concentration, and energy. Our emphasis is to educate families affected by autism. We may also help individuals with conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and autoimmune diseases, which can be improved with a healthy diet. Nutrition empowers people to be in charge of their health. For example, the brain has self-healing mechanisms that are activated by particular foods. When the client becomes aware that eating the right foods can make a healthy version of themselves, they tend to make the right selections. Also, my clients will not feel that they are inside a prison of a particular disease. Having optimal nutrition requires commitment and work, but it is doable, and the benefits are astronomical, like less medical expenses and a clear mind to enjoy life. I am available for live webinars and speaking engagements. Being a certified John Maxwell speaker and coach helps me in these areas.
Me: And what is the price ranges for the services you offer?
David: The initial consultation is priced at $177 and includes a 45 minute consultation, in which I am going to explain an evidence-based nutritional strategy for the particular situation. I will review any deficiencies or interactions caused by medications, an extensive medical history to uncover which problems may be the root cause of a disease, and, more importantly, what may be improved with nutrition, high-quality supplements at the correct dose, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle. In autism, the use of nutritious foods and high-quality dietary supplements can be beneficial for hyperactivity, concentration, insomnia, aggression, etc. My total focus is for my clients to have a better quality of life with more energy, focus, less pain, and more freedom to do what they love.
